Hylan Plaza Cinemas

Located in the New Dorp district of Staten Island. The 1,150-seat Fox Theatre opened on April 7, 1966, with Disney’s “The Ugly Dachshund” & the animated feature “Winnie the Pooh”. It was operated by Fox Eastern Theatres and Joan Crawford was a special opening guest.

It was a huge modern theatre, great for seeing such epics as “The Blue Max”, “Grand Prix” and “You Only Live Twice”.

It was twinned on November 12, 1975, and was closed on September 9, 1988 to be expanded to 7-screen by Cineplex Odeon. But due to Chapter 11, this never happened. It reopened as the UA Hylan Plaza with 5-screens on July 1, 1993 with “Son in Law”, “The Firm”, “Sleepless in Seattle” and Disney’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”.

Midnight shows included “Rocky Horror Picture Show”, vintage Marx Brothers films, “Monty Python & the Holy Grail” and soft core X-rated films. It was closed on January 17, 2017. Later in 2017 it was demolished together with the entire shopping center.

With the release of the latest Star Wars Movie episode VII I was inspired to search for the movie theatre where I saw the original movie back when I was a kid. I remember seeing Star Wars at this theatre for the first time when I was 5 ½ years old back in May of 1977 when it was known as the Fox Theatre. My older sister as myself loved this movie and she took me every week during the weekends while it played there throughout the rest of 1977. I do not know how long the Star Wars run lasted at the Fox, but If I were to guess it was 6+ months and I probably saw the movie 30+ times back then. Walking with my sister to go see Star Wars from where I use to live on Hett Avenue were very happy days and for me and a defining moment in my child hood memories.

I was a projectionist at the Hylan Plaza from its opening under the UA banner in 93 through January of 96. I’m sorry to say that this location has just closed.

The entire Hylan Plaza shopping center was torn down in 2017 and is being replaced with a modern shopping center called ‘The Boulevard’ which will include an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
